Torch Down Roof
Are you looking to install or repair your commercial roofing system? At Conner Roofing, our experts specialize in torch down roofing in St. Louis. The product name comes from the technique and adherence of the material to the actual roofing structure. The process involves melting the material to the sheathing that supports the base of the structure, making a seal that prevents leaks into the commercial building surface. At Conner Roofing, we have the tools and resources to provide you with the best torch down installation in town.
Types of Torch Down Roofs
There are two ways to approach the installation of torch down roofs, the two-layer system and the three-layer system. The two-layer system is the process of a base layer followed with the torch down layer. For a longer lasting system, the three-layer torch down roof system has the base layer, a smooth torch down layer, then a granular surface that protects the torch down material. The three-layer system requires less maintenance and lasts much longer than the two-layer surface. Our professionals at Conner Roofing have the tools and skills to install both systems, depending on the preference of our clients.
Torch Down Roof Advantages
Torch down roofing systems provide a great amount of benefits for commercial buildings. Because of their rubberized asphalt material, these systems prevent water leaks and UV light from penetrating the surface of your building. The three-layer system requires minimal maintenance during its duration, which tends to be about 15-20 years, making it an affordable long term investment for your business. Its upfront costs is a bit more than traditional commercial roofing systems, but since it requires no maintenance and lasts longer than that of traditional roofs, you don’t have to worry about maintenance and repair costs. There are lower-cost alternatives that are similar to torch down roofs, but tend to not have the same advantages and lasts not as long.
The torch down installation process is a very dangerous process in which you have to work with a very hot surface, and if it gets too dry, can catch fire. Our professionals have the tools and safety requirements to do any job.
